Emma Watson’s “Belle doll” from the upcoming Beauty and the Beast live action film made the rounds online when people noticed it looked more like Justin Bieber than Emma herself. An article in The Telegraph even called it “an unfortunately ugly doll.” 10 points for savagery!
I mean, sure, it looks a bit like Emma, but that massive forehead though! WHY, DISNEY?!
THIS IS HORRIFYING! Disney WYD?! pic.twitter.com/XS1eSaL118

Thankfully, Filipino-American artist Noel Cruz who’s known for repainting celebrity and movie character dolls to make them look more life-like, did his magic and “fixed” the Emma Watson doll. Pure talent ! We really wish we have one, too.
People who’ve known Cruz for repainting dolls like Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, Katniss Everdeen, Twilight characters, and more, requested to repaint the “unfortunately ugly doll.”
“I appreciate all of your requests for a repainted version. The completed version will be on ebay soon,” said Cruz. He also said he will find a more suitable body after people noted it wasn’t in proportion with its huge head.
Now that looks waaaay more like Emma Watson as Belle. Definitely the “beauty” in Beauty and the Beast!
